Islington North MP Jeremy Corbyn’s Twitter account was hijacked by a hacker who used it to brand the Prime Minister “a pie”.

The Labour leader’s account was infiltrated shortly after 9pm last night, when it started broadcasting a series of bizarre messages.

In one post the hacker poked fun at Mr Corbyn’s well-known opposition to Trident, Britain’s nuclear missile programme, by writing: “F*** trident”.

And in another they mocked Prime Minister David Cameron by writing: “davey cameron is a pie”.

And another message to the Labour leader’s 384,000 followers started: “Here we ... here we ... here we f***ing go!!!”

Mr Corbyn’s team quickly regained control of the @jeremycorbyn account.

“At least they weren’t subtle,” a source said.
